Tacit Theatre return to Southwark Playhouse in March with our brand new adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective classic.
A young and ambitious Holmes at the outset of his career meets a war-ravaged, disenchanted Watson – discharged from the army after the horrors of the Afghan war – aimlessly floating around London and fast running out of money. A gruesome discovery in a derelict house in Camberwell sets them on a trail of intrigue and revenge, which leads through Victorian London’s murky underbelly across the world to a Mormon settlement in Utah.
Join Holmes and Watson as they take their first steps together towards becoming one of literature’s most iconic duos.
Our new production features an original score, live music, immersive design and an ensemble cast of actor-musicians.
